Polestar Pilates is a very thorough and in-depth program. I learned all of the Polestar pilates principles and how to apply them to each exercise. I also learned a proper evaluation and assessment for each new patient and Client that I work with. Polestar taught me the importance of breath work and how to apply the correct exercises to the individual based on their injuries and health and wellness goals.
I completed my Diploma with Polestar in 2003 and had done previous certifications with other bodies prior to embarking on the Polestar journey. Polestar Pilates impacted my discovery learning journey with so much depth and direction that I have never looked back. Polestar Pilates is more than a Diploma- it is a community of passionate intellects who want to impact the world through movement... I am forever grateful to the spark Polestar Pilates ignited in me. I have my own successful studio with 9 staff and am a senior Educator for Polestar Pilates and also present world wide on Pilates. My life would not be what it is today without Polestar Pilates. If you want to be at the forefront of the industry I truly believe that you can not pass up the opportunity of learning with Polestar Pilates. The education is going to challenge you mentally and physically and prepare you to be a proficient and excited practitioner.
I have qualified with Polestar firstly as a Mat teacher in 2018 and I have returned to complete the comprehensive course in 2022. I absolutely love being part of the Polestar family, thanks to the incredible knowledgeable mentors they constantly inspire me to learn and to seek deeply to understand the rehabilitation process of injuries. The weekly Pilates Hour with Brent Anderson has giving me so much more knowledge keeping me motivated in my everyday teaching. I love to learn and to share my knowledge and hopefully one day I will be able to part of the mentoring team.

Polestar Pilates sets itself apart by constantly evolving, yet being all encompassing in its delivery of educational material as well as the learning experience. The Polestar community is ever helpful, ever willing to share and explore information together, to help one another grow to be a better version of themselves at any one time. The high standard that Polestar holds itself to is what makes Polestar graduates shine in the global Pilates community.
My Polestar education was incredibly thorough. It included learning about the Pilates repertoire plus about the many contraindications and precautions I potentially would and in fact did often encounter working with a varied population. It provided a very strong foundation of knowledge which prepared me to teach 1:1 and Pilates Mat classes for over 19 years now. It was hugely comprehensive. I am so grateful to Sherri Betz and the Polestar team.
I became Polestar Practitioner 20 years ago in NYC. I then opened up my own studio teaching mostly private one on one clients for more than 14 years. I also was able to apply Polestar principles with my Patients while working in Physical Therapy as a PTA, and of course, in life as well!
I first qualified in 2004 with Polestar Au as a mat instructor. This qualification gave me the confidence to go and teach small classes of high quality. After teaching in Australia and the UK for a few years I then went on to take the Comprehensive training at Polestar UK. I am now a Physio assistant/ Pilates instructor at a small clinic with a fully equipped studio. I get to work with every body, from UK Olympic gymnasts to 89 Yr old Parkinsons sufferer. Polestar training has given me the tools to give a variety of bodies, a movement experience without pain. Highly recommended
I had been teaching Clinical Pilates as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist for 3 years, and had 30 years physiotherapy experience with my own private clinic, when I wanted further Pilates expertise. I had completed a few introductory and intermediate Pilates courses when Polestar Pilates was recommended to me. I learnt more than I could imagine! I learnt so much about my own body and how to teach with skill and precision. Polestar Pilates improved my observational skills, my teaching repertoire and confidence and my own strength. I would recommend this course to everyone who strives for excellence.
I was drawn to Polestar because of it's therapeutic focus. I learned assessment skills and how to design a customized Pilates exercise program to address a client's specific needs. Polestar helped me grow as a professional by enabling me to work with special populations to give them a positive movement experience. I would encourage other Pilates enthusiasts who want to go beyond just learning the choreography to consider Polestar training to learn how to effectively apply the exercises for specific client needs.
